The Cherry Bluestorms - "Bad Penny Opera" (2013)

"Bad Penny Opera" (2013)

Never boring and often surprising in it's melodic twists and lyrical turns ... I'll file The Cherry Bluestorms' 2013 release "Bad Penny Opera" under "Psychedelic-rock with Prog-folk underpinnings". Musically, the compositions evoke the finely honed psychedelic-rock of the late 60s with a modern pop sensibility - and while Deborah Gee and Glen Laughlin's vocal stylings are unique and memorable in their own right, when combined on tracks like "By Your Leave" a higher folk-tinged cosmically-pop harmonic level is attained - and that's mighty sweet to my ears! 

Well worth putting on "repeat" and letting it play over and over, "Bad Penny Opera" is a nugget of newly minted psychedelic-folk/rock gold and that's my two cents worth.
